On the 30th of March 2019, at the second Howl Fest, the sonic egg hatched and heralded the manipulation of earth’s atmosphere through a multitude of sources perceived not only by the aural but also the physical senses. A motion generated by stasis. A state akin to soaring through the cosmos unburdened by gravity, origin, destination or other limitations. So much so that the very existence of the motion is debatable. As close to stasis as any type of movement can be.
Accompanied with live visuals by Jelmer Noordeman.
Lärmschutz invited their friend and longtime collaborator on many Lärmschutz releases, Ab Bol, to drone with them as an answer to the one The Howl Ensemble XXL created.
